(sorry if I'm getting a little off topic here)

The old Snapcaster Mage art is pretty terrible, IMO. No sense of movement or depth, ugly ass background, ugly ass armor, awkward pose, and that thing that looks like a Saiyan Scouter in his eye just ticks me off for whatever reason. There's no way you look at that guy and think "hey, there's a guy that casts spells in the blink of an eye". And somehow the first draft of the artwork looks even worse. Glad that one was scrapped.

Anyway, if they replaced the art that had Bob Maher's face in it for Dark Confidant reprints, I can't see why they wouldn't do it with Tiago Chan's. I like reprints with different art, it's nice to see more than one artist's take on the same idea - especially when they have an unique style. I miss Rebecca Guay :(

Oh that IS Snapcaster Mage, no doubt about it. Or should I say, it has to be - or else WotC is either incredibly stupid or actively trolling us. I mean... they know everyone's hoping for a Snappy reprint in MM3. They wouldn't put a picture of a guy that looks like a wizard casting a spell over a freaking blue background on an MM3 box if it wasn't him. They can't be that cruel.

My favorite combo is Living Lore + Cruel Ultimatum (with something like Heartless Summoning or Mass Hysteria so you're ready to swing every turn). Is there a worse fate for a MtG player than being on the receiving end of a Cruel Ultimatum every turn? I don't think so. (Well, maybe watching a Soul Sisters mirror match, but never mind)

That said, I have this little combo deck I call "bye bye land", which uses Devastating Summons + Howl of the Horde to generate six huge tokens (which is usually more than most decks can deal with) after swinging with Sakura-Tribe Elder or Coiling Oracle and it's probably the most fun combo to pull off, because most people don't understand why I'm swinging with a 1/1 weenie against their untapped 4/5 beatstick, until they see me play Howl and go "oh shit WHAT DO YOU MEAN THIS ISN'T SCAPESHIFT". (one guy even tried to Slaughter Games the Scapeshifts out of my deck, only to realize there were none hahahaha)

Said on ZUBRASSS...


Bloodthrone Vampire is terrible. Play four Viscera Seers and no Bloodthrone Vampires.
